More Levy world tour fun here, as they go to Israel and cause all sorts of bedlam there. Lol. Here, they wander around the path where Christ took his walk to his crucification, watch the people wander by, gawk at the street peddlers and beggars and generally have a whoop of a time. I just LOVED when they stopped by the wailing wall and just acted stupid, the female posing in front of praying pilgrims, the camera going back and forth etc. I really felt some sort of discomfort here for them, though I am not sure if the pilgrims cared lol

Subject: Truly Amateur
An amateur home-movie in every sense of the word. Bad camera technique with relentless mugging by the Levy family. Footage might be useful in a narrative film wherein one of the characters shows movies of his trip to the Middle East during the 30's.
